After completing an undergraduate degree in biological sciences at UC Irvine, Fox earned a medical degree at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston.

He returned to UC Irvine to complete a residency in emergency medicine, followed by a fellowship in emergency ultrasound at the University of Illinois, where Fox became the nation's third emergency physician to specialize in emergency medicine radiology.
